LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2004 National Showcase  
Buster Posey is a strong lean athletic 6'1/180 RHP/SS from Leesburg, GA. Posey is already a polished four pitch pitcher with excellent athletic ability. He threw an effortless 90-92 mph with a sharp, deep slider, a power curveball and an effective fading change up. He’s one of the very top pitchers in the 2005 class. We've seen him up as high as 94 mph with very good command. He's also a highest level SS with his great arm, good hands and nice actions. He shows big time hitting ability also with surprising power. At the top college in the country he is a top player immediately. It will be interesting to see if MLB clubs will draft him early as a pitcher. He's got one of the very best arms in the country, but he's not the big RHP they normally draft early. Buster is an excellent student. He was selected to the AFLAC All American Team.
